Photo;Yannis Behrakis

This post has nothing the do with Skopelos but it has to do with Greece and the time we live in. Yannis Behrakis was a world renowned Greek photojournalist who won, with his team, a Pulitzer price in 2016 for the body of work about refugees arriving in Greece and their long journey towards peace, freedom and hopefully finding a home.

Yannis Behrakis said: ”The way the Greeks handled the crises (refugees from Syria and other countries) in the middle of a crises, it was remarkable. You know they gave money out of their pockets that had no money. The Pulitzer should go to the Greek people”

The world has lost one of the best photojournalists of our time who risked his life to give voice to the voiceless: “For me there is only one choice, to help these people, because apart from simple rules of humanity, you don’t know if one day you become a refugee or a migrant. Greece is full of people that everyday are becoming immigrants, how would you like if your brother goes to The States and they treat him badly?” ~ Yannis Behrakis Full story: https://bit.ly/2En5AGM

Park elsewhere

Parking near the harbor is terrible at the moment. At night, drivers are circling the harbor for a long time before they find a spot. The cars are parked everywhere, even on the beach. There is a car park behind the health center which is only a few minutes walk from the center of Skopelos. I am going to try that out after last nights disaster. It is a pity it is not well known where you can park except in the parking lot and the harbor.

Forever remembered

In an attempt to have something permanent that reminds the elementary school and the students (of the 6th grade) of their time spent in the school, the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts together with the students made colored clay tiles with various themes.

The baked tiles were then put on one of the walls of the elementary school. Every year the next 6th graders will do the same

.

The tiles were placed on the wall by Pavel and Jill and more volunteers helped out. What a great initiative.

No parking

From Monday the 4th of June is is forbidden to park your car in the area surrounding the harbor of Skopelos. This means the harbor front, around the entrance of the harbor and the street towards the village, in front of the mayors office and in some places around the old harbor. It is best to park your car in the car park or somewhere further away like around the high school, in the car park near the stadium etc. etc. I picked up the news from the Greek blog Efimerida Vories Sporades
